It’s a project that’s been around a long time this one, at one stage a possible vehicle for Robert Redford and Paul Newman. The current guise of the film will be directed by John Lee Hancock, who previously wrote the Kevin Costner-headlined A Perfect World, and directed The Founder and Saving Mr Banks.
Hancock has re-written the script too, from an earlier draft by John Dusco.

Clint Eastwood is one of those rare Hollywood stars who is a legend both in front of and behind the camera. While he's best known to most audiences as an actor, with decades of iconic performances, but he has also established himself as one of our finest filmmakers as well. In recent years, the multi-hyphenate has focused his energies more on filmmaking and less in acting, with his last on screen performance coming in his 2012 baseball movie entitled Trouble With the Curve, where he played an aging baseball scout. During an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival, the Hollywood icon suggested that he eventually will make his return to acting.
Variety attended a master class being put on by the actor-filmmaker at the Cannes Film Festival, where he discussed a variety of topics. The filmmaker stated that he does miss performing "once in a while but not often," while hinting »
This article contains spoilers for Logan.
“We always thought we were part of God’s plan. Turns out we were God’s mistake.”
James Mangold’s Logan, which draws heavily on Western stories about gunfighters in twilight, ends with the moving gesture of a makeshift cross being turned on its side to make an X. The film itself is a fluke of the superhero-franchise era; it’s both violent and terrifically subtle (aided by some of the best acting in the genre) and has more in common with great mid-period Clint Eastwood movies like A Perfect World and Unforgiven than with the X-Men series to which it serves as a revisionist epilogue. Let me draw your attention to just one side of a film that I think has a lot worth appreciating: its careful, pointed broaching of the subject of religious faith. Throughout Logan, one hears the religion of »

Micheal Keaton stars in the story of the man who brought McDonald's to the world....
The last time Laura Dern worked on a project involving writer/director John Lee Hancock, it was the excellent A Perfect World, that Hancock wrote and Clint Eastwood directed. There, she had a meaty role, and brought to it the gravity and commitment we’ve come to expect from a Laura Dern performance. For Hancock’s latest, The Founder – which he directs, this time from a script by Robert Siegel – it’s incredibly miserable then to see Dern reduced to what may just be the most thankless role of her career. Here, she’s the wife of Michael Keaton’s Ray Kroc, but in terms of a character on screen, her job is to wear either an evening dress or nightwear, and basically to scowl at and nag her husband. Like most of The Founder, »
